win32:malware-gen smss.exe
« on: December 07, 2009, 07:30:59 PM »
Hi,
I keep getting Avast notifications on the file smss.exe located in C:\Users\<my user>\AppData\Local\Temp\~temp\aiunml60
I keep deleting and it keep coming back.
I scanned it in VT (thank you guys for instructions!!) and received the attached report.
Any idea how to get rid of it?
Thank you for your help!!
